Good morning to you all - I hope you are all safe and well and had a fun time at Halloween - we had a party at school yesterday - one of the other mums and myself spent a couple of hours decorating the hall - and then the party was in the evening .It went well but I'm still shattered now! This is a picture of my girls before they left for the party.


And these are the pumpkins they carved this afternoon!!!! Well should I say I carved?!!!

Anyway - onto today's offering  - I've made a little wooden piece of art - the colours are inspired by autumn but the rest is just fantasy. What do you think?



I had lots of fun making this and its quite pretty I think - I used spiced marmalade distress stain to colour the wood back and front and then some aged mahogony distress stain that I painted on in lines - after that I stamped the lavinia images in black and then added spray and sparkle gold. I made the flowers using the tattered florals die and cut some leaves - then assembled everything and added the believe metal tag.

I'd like to enter this piece into the following challenges:
